About the service
The Responsive Behaviours Consultancy (RBC) aims to help staff within an organisation, understand the causes of responsive behaviours and to find ways to avoid or reduce them.
We aim to assist organisations create a sustainable capacity building education framework around reducing and addressing dementia related responsive behaviours.
This consultancy service is available as part of a Tailored Training Program and can complement the service provided by Dementia Support Australia (DSA) by providing additional training aimed at bringing about facility wide changes in practice.
Ideally it is used by organisations who wish to avoid the need to call on DBMAS by ensuring that their staff are trained to provide care in a way that meets the spoken and unspoken needs of residents.
* In light of ongoing discussion on the use of language in the dementia community, DTA uses the term ‘responsive behaviours’ rather than Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD).
The 4 components of the Responsive Behaviours Consultancy include:
Assessment of your organisation’s policies and staff dementia knowledge
Delivery of our Lead and Learn education program
Support and mentoring sessions
